“It’s a funny idea to organize your life around making something that no one asked for and then even funnier to hope that you can continue to do this unlikely thing for a long time. Somedays my career feels a magic trick that I am just pulling off. I was a philosophy major in college and thought I would go to law school and become a judge. Then when I was looking into which law school to apply to, I realized that I did not want to spend my days doing this. I wanted to spend my days making dances.”
Emery LeCrone, whose burgeoning dance company is a little over a year old, discusses starting a career as an independent choreographer– and how she feeds her creativity with diverse hobbies, relationships to her colleagues and a drive to always be getting better.
